rebel-controlled towns. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton says a no-fly zone would need the backing of the international community and that the u.s. won't go it alone. colonel gadhafi says libyan people will take up arms if a no-fly zone is imposed. >>> calls for foreign intervention in libya are growing as pro-gadhafi forces continue to pound rebel-held towns. one city on the front lines is ras lanuf, in the east of the country. on tuesday, the air force attacked repeatedly, rebels try to defend the city with anti-aircraft fire. opposition officials have accused gadhafi of bombing nearby water reserves. >>> libya is not made up of one cohesive group, rather a collection of individuals who have a common goal. they want gadhafi to go, but most of them lack the skills and training to take on his army. and there are even reports in some areas that rebels are running out of weapons. from eastern libya, cnn's ben wedeman reports. >> don't shoot unless given orders, don't move unless given orders. this anti-gadhafi field commander tells his men over a megaphone. nearby, more s

and unacceptable risk for the u.s. i think the u.s. could support this with intelligence. as well as logistics. but i don't want to see u.s. aircraft involved in a no-fly zone. >> judge napolitano: walid, should the president of the united states ask you for his advice about whether any military assistance would work, having just heard what the general said and respecting him as i know you do, what would you tell the president? >> the best thing is not to involve any of our assets if we can. but time is not on our side. in the sense that what is happening in the opposition area is where i'm concerned. not really what gaddafi is doing. gaddafi could be taken out by either the united states or the europeans no doubt about that. but i'm afraid that the radical element will slowly creep in to the area of the command and soon we will have libya under gaddafi and maybe libya under a radical at the end of the day. it's a hard strategic choice to make. >> judge napolitano: last question, what do you think will happen? as things now stand, is he crazy enough to stay there while bullets are shooting at

multiple issues that bring equities in from all kinds of different departments throughout the u.s. government. so you need someone to be able to break through this stovepiping and it can't be a deputy assistant secretary of state who just gets dual hatted to be doing something else besides their regular job which is 20 hours a day anyways with the beeper going off every 30 minutes in the other four hours. you just got to have someone who's full-time job is focused and it's someone with influence, someone that can pick up the phone and say, secretary clinton, it's actually time for you to say or do something now. and someone who can actually move this system, move the needle away from the inertia that just prevades government. this is just where it is. people are well meaning but system is -- it's systemically tilted towards the status quo. to be able to move that needle away from the status quo towards action. that's what you need a special envoy for and we should collectively civil society and the legislative branch press the executive branch to do this as soon as possible. we kn
